The pen I got given is shown above, it came with the ultra flex nib… and it’s quite frankly amazing. The pen is very well designed and really comfortable to hold. You can fill the pen with ink (probably the best option) but I went for using a cartridge. The pen was easy to dismantle and the cartridge was painless to install. When it came to the important bit, the writing, the pen was a powerhouse, the ink flowed super smoothly and the ultra flex nib glided across the page.
The nib itself was really fun to use, i could press as hard or as soft as I liked and the nib just flexed and worked with no issues.
The “Indus” pen is a incredible, I’ve used many Fountain pens in the past and the Indus honestly rivals some of the best on the market, and it’s a really great price. I highly recommend you check it out along with the other pens and accessories at (www.fprevolutionusa.com)
